Nursing (Child) BSc (Hons)

Would you like a dynamic and challenging career as a children's nurse? Children and young people's nurses deliver care which is child centred within a family context. Children's nurses are able to understand the developmental needs of children from birth to transition into adult life and how this is affected by ill health.

This three-year child nursing degree combines theory and practice in an innovative way, to focus on the care of children across a wide range of healthcare settings.

Your studies will be based in our state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Centre. Role-play scenarios will prepare you for clinical practice and allow you to develop a wide range of practical skills. You'll also undertake work placements in a wide variety of clinical settings at our partner health boards. Successful completion of this child nursing degree will allow you entry to the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) Register as a qualified children's nurse and ready to embark on a rewarding career.
